Swacking the details from smokeYYY:
When you’re one of the greatest emcees of the modern generation readying your bow from hip-hop with three albums, what do you do meanwhile? In Lupe Fiasco’s case, you simply watch a film, get invigorated, start a band, begin making not so bad post-indie punk music in a faux British accent, think of a peculiar band name (cue “Japanese Cartoon”), create a MySpace page, & upload the music. Then act like it isn’t you but rather Percival Fats. Cool.
SHAKE UPDATE: I added a bonus cut that’s retaahded. Check it. Also… Japanese Cartoon put up a new blog on their MySpace that goes against what smokeYYY says… hit the jump for the message and believe what you want. I’ll try to get to the bottom of it…
Amidst The Rebuild & Stun, Clarification.
Japanese Cartoon’s myspace page has been hacked.
Percival Fats (Born Percival Hindenburg-Fats) Is NOT Lupe Fiasco (Born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco). Although he is a dear friend.
Japanese Cartoon will reload songs onto the player as soon as we figure out how via the technical support fellows at Myspace.
Please DO NOT disseminate their music ILLEGALLY.
These guys have worked very hard and placed a large amount of energy and financial dedication into this project.
Lupe does finance the band but is NOT I REPEAT NOT THE SINGER IN JAPANESE CARTOON. He is however the producer and we value his participation very much.
We will not be taking any friend requests until this security matter is cleared up as we might not be able to keep this page.
